Hey guys.
Here's some pictures of the build-up of my car. I bought it in 2010, in November. It's a Datsun 240Z built in 1972, first bought in 1973. The car had it's engine shot and the floor was mostly rust covered with silicon kind of ish. Interior was also in bad shape. The car was originally white with dark red interior so I decided to keep that combo - with a twist.
It took me half a year to get where I am now working day by day on the car. Here's what was done so far:

Engine:
2.8 liter block bored 0,2mm and fully rebuilt with dished pistons, cleaned round top Hitachi carburators with fresh 20W oil, new gaskets, K&N oil filter, fresh paint on block and engine cover, custom exhaust with CherryBomb Turbo muffler, R200 limited slip differential with 280Z mounts and mustache, 5 speed manual gearbox, Centerforce clutch.

Body:
New floor, and some body panels, every other body part repaired, removed antenna and emblem holes, front and rear bumpers modified and painted, FairladyZ emblems, BRE duck tail, Xenon front air dam with cooling duct holes, ZG fender flares, clear headlight covers, H4 headlights, clear front indicators modified to work as positioning lights, clear front side markers, new mirrors on door. Color is Spectrum White Pearl.

Interior:
Fresh roof liner, repaired trims and new gaskets, screws, pins, dash cracks repaired and dash half cover installed, OMP Brands Hatch seats, roll bar, Nardi Torino Classic steering wheel and hub, Nardi Classico gear knob, Nardi handbrake lever with custom leather boot, Sparco Reflex pedal set, new floor carpet and Z logo carpets, new speedometer line and all bulbs. Some stereo system on it's way too including Nakamichi player and speaker box as taillight cover.

Suspension and wheels:
Hayashi Racing 501 meshies with rotors powder coated gold, custom aluminum caps, front 15x8 ET 0 with 35mm spacer, rear 15x9,5 ET -38, no spacer, tires BF Goodrich G-Force Sport 225/55/15 front and rear,
Tokico adjustable struts, unknown coils, fully adjustable hight, front suspension spacers, pillow mounts with adjustable camber f+r, adjustable camber aluminum bushings f+r, polyurethane bushings everywhere else, Cusco rear stabilizer bar, front brakes swapped with bigger diameter brake rotors and 4-pot calipers, Goodridge steel brake lines, suspension parts powder coated gold and black, front and rear strut bars.

There's some more things that I can't remember now. I'll update it eventually.

After I bought the car - it looked OK but boy what a mess of a car it was:

The car now sits lower, especially at the front and I am still putting the interior back together, so no pictures of it yet. It still requires a lot of work and attention but it runs so I can call it a success anyway :mrgreen:
